Dear Members and Friends of Old South Haven Church,

This coming Sunday, Palm Sunday, marks a year of Zoom church services.  It has been an interesting experience—not being in the church—but at least we can see each other on Zoom.

This coming Palm Sunday will again be a Zoom Service.  The link is below and the Bulletin and Prayer Concerns are attached.  Pastor Glorya's sermon topic will be:  "It's Donkey Day"

Palms are to be delivered to the church around 11:00 A. M. on Saturday and you may come to the church to get some palms until 1:00 P. M. that day.  Please let us know if you need to get your palms at another time.

Peace and Love,

Linda

Dear Members and Friends of Old South Haven Church,

I am again inviting you to join us this Sunday for our Church Service on Zoom.  The details for joining the service are below.  The Bulletin and Prayer Concerns are attached as well as information about the Great Hour of Sharing offering. Pastor Glorya's sermon topic is:  "A New Covenant.  A new Contract.  A Chance to Change."

Please note that the church is hoping to have a Church and Vendor Sale on May 29th.  Please mark your calendars.

Also, the Church Reopening Committee is working on opening the church safely. (See Pastor Glorya's letter below)  We are hoping to be back in the church on July 4th to celebrate our country's birthday as well to celebrate a new beginning for our worship.  We are also working on finding a way to also continue our Zoom services for those who cannot be with us in person.

I look forward to seeing you on Zoom this coming Sunday.
Peace and Love, Linda

Dear Sisters and Brothers in Christ:

Good news!!

Last Monday night (March 15, 2021) at the session meeting your Property and Finance Committee brought for action a possible re-opening date for worship. The committee is suggesting Sunday, July 4th for the re-opening. What better way to celebrate the country's birthday than to re-open our church?

While it's easy to set a date for re-opening the actual process of doing so isn't quite so simple. There are supplies to be purchased and protocols to be set in place and voted upon by session for the protection of all. These protocols must be adhered to not only by you, the congregation, but by every group meeting on the premises as well. Fortunately, the State of New York Department of Health updated it's "Interim Guidance for Religious and Funeral Services" February 2, 2021 which is a helpful resource.

We can always hope they update again before July with some relaxation of processes. Stay tuned!

As your pastor I love being able to see everyone's face up close and personal as the saying goes. But I do look forward to greeting you face-to-face and being able to shake your hands (if possible in July; if not bumping elbows). In the meantime Linda Majowka has become our techie as she became quite proficient in the zoom department. Also coffee hour has not only become a time of sipping coffee but a time when we have listened to each other. It has especially been a time of learning for all of us. Technology has come to the head of the line in the what will we learn today department. Zoom, Skype, and whatever else there is out there, has made it possible for us to "go on" with our lives for the most part.

We have found that we are flexible (even the stick in the muds like yours truly) and that no matter the circumstances we will be ok.

Lastly, if you haven't already, when your time comes, get vaccinated. That will help in the process of cutting off this COVID snake's head. (Couldn't resist after last week's sermon.)

Shalom,
Pastor Glorya

Adult Study Old South Haven Church this Thursday

Old South Haven Presbyterian Church
Brookhaven, NY

Hello to all OSHC friends

This Thursday at 7 PM is the second in our Adult Study based on some teachings of the "progressive" Christian theologian Marcus Borg, who died in 2015, not long after putting together this program.    This week, the topic is Jesus.  We will watch a DVD clip of Borg leading  a study group much like our own (except his wasn't on Zoom....) and then discuss.   We hope you will join us!  See the link below.  

Some suggested questions to think about before the get together:
Why does Jesus matter to you (if he does)?
What does Easter mean to you?
What does it mean to you to respond wholeheartedly to Jesus' call to "follow me?"
What difference does it make to you that Jeus was a faithful practicing Jew?
How has relationship with the post-Easter Jesus changed your life?Topic: Adult study

Adult Study Old South Haven Church

Old South Haven Presbyterian Church
Brookhaven, NY





Reminder: Adult Study Session "Embracing An Adult Faith" based on a DVD by Marcus Borg continues this Thursday, March 11 at 7PM on Zoom  

Each session starts with a video clip talking to a small group of participants about a given topic for the week; Who is God?  Who was Jesus?  What is salvation?  How do we practice our faith? How do we live in community? Then we will watch a few minutes of discussion with Borg's group, and then we'll take off on our own.

Borg was a well known theologian and a best selling author.  If you would like to supplement your Thursday nite study there are  many books by him available on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, etc.  The one I mentioned a few months ago is a series of essays on various topics, including the ones on the DVD:  Days of Awe and Wonder:  How to Be a Christian in the 21st Century.  But the sessions are meant to stand alone, so should be enriching  without the extra reading.

The zoom info will be the same for each week, and is below.  I set up 6 meetings but we will only use 5 of them.  The 5th session is the Thursday before Easter, so we can see later whether we want to skip that one and meet the following week.
